Tourico Holidays, a travel distribution company that contracts directly with hotels, airlines, cruise lines, attractions and car rentals, will showcase its latest latest at IPW 2015 in Orlando, USA May 30th to June 3.
Tourico will field the following products:
A group bidding engine: Lets travel agents and other distributors submit group reservation requests and gives selected hotels 24 hours to bid on them. Travel agents can bundle their hotel selection with group transfers, activities, and attractions – making it a one-stop transaction for all group services.
Hilton Worldwide Connectivity: Tourico has upgraded its connectivity platform with Hilton Worldwide and as a result, it says Hilton’s direct-connect bookings jumped by 23,000 in the first quarter of 2015, an increase of 153 per cent year-over-year. Q1 room nights also increased by 47,000 – or 188 per cent year-over-year – and net revenue from the quarter increased by US$7.4 million.
Pre-buying activities: Tourico is now pre-buying activity and attraction tickets from key suppliers – giving clients access to heavily discounted rates, no blackout dates, last-minute availability and more inventory. This is an extension of the company’s highly successful hotel pre-purchasing strategy branded “ExclusiveDeals”.
Book by the Door Home Rentals: Tourico has developed groundbreaking “Book by the Door” technology that provides clients with an on-location view of specific vacation home properties located around the world. Using the technology, companies and agents can access high-resolution imagery of more than 20,000 individually photographed vacation home properties – affording them greater confidence in booking on behalf of their client, and the ability to provide a superior level of customer service.
Deals x Destination: The company has a “Deals” tab that aggregates promotions, preferred partnerships, and best-value offers based on location. Clients can now visit the Deals x Destination page to download the deals sheet or sign up and get the most current deals sent via email.
